More than 500 people and over 100 units of combat and special engineering equipment took part in the gathering of assault and defensive units of the engineering troops of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. The gathering was held on the basis of the Tyumen Higher Military Engineering Command School named after Marshal of Engineering Troops A.I. Proshlyakov. The event brought together representatives of engineering and assault units from different parts of Russia: Khabarovsk, Ufa, Murom, Bolshoi Tura, Ishim and other cities.

During the gathering, the military personnel improved the practical skills necessary for the execution of tasks by the assault and clearing units. With attack aircraft, classes were conducted in the main disciplines of combat and special training, due to the specifics of the use of assault and defensive units. These include classes on the construction and overcoming of engineering barriers, including in urban areas, explosives, practical shooting, overcoming a special assault strip. Particular attention was paid to the fulfillment of tasks to capture fortified areas and assault targets on a specially equipped engineering and assault complex.

Of no small importance was the exchange of experience, the formation among the participants of the training camp a clear idea of ​​the importance of the assault and barrage units of the engineering troops of the Russian Armed Forces, the rallying of military teams and the enhancement of the prestige of military service in the engineering and assault units of the engineering troops.

Traditionally, at the end of the training camp, the Engineering Assault competition was held with the engineering and assault divisions, in which the best assault and defensive divisions in the Armed Forces were determined.

In total, 10 teams took part in the competition in 2 groups from engineering regiments and from engineering formations. The first among the formations were representatives of the 1st engineer brigade from Murom, the 2nd and 3rd places were taken by teams from 14 military brigades from the Vyatskoye settlement of the Khabarovsk Territory and 12 troops from the Central Military District from the city of Ufa. Among the regiments, the first were soldiers-attack aircraft 39th from the Central Military District from the city of Kizner, then the team from the 30th isp from the Western Military District from the city of Kerro, the third place was taken by the team of the 6th Spanish Military District from the city of Rostov-Yaroslavsky.

Major General Dmitry Koruts, Chief of Engineering Troops of the Central Military District, Major General Dmitry Koruts, Head of the Tyumen Higher Military Engineering Command School named after Marshal of Engineering Troops A.I. Proshlyakov, Major General Dmitry Evmenenko, and Head of Department combat training of the directorate of the Chief of Engineering Troops of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, Colonel Vladislav Veryasov.

Each team consisted of a senior team, a commander of an engineering assault platoon, an engineering assault squad (group) – 10 people (8 people from an engineering assault squad and 2 people from an armored personnel carrier).

The competition was held on a specially equipped engineering strip in the form of a relay race, consisting of three stages. During the first stage, the servicemen parachuted along a rope from a model of a helicopter, overcame a flexible bridge, a rope wall, a model of a two-story house using an assault ladder, threw small infantry paddles into a wooden shield, lying, on their bellies, overcame a fence on low stakes, threw ” cat “at a distance and trawled the area. Then, the teams landed in armored vehicles, which had to overcome the track bridge, a passage with marked turns and a straight limited passage, make turns according to signs, and overcome fords.

In the second section of the relay, the engineering assault squads were to carry out demining and make passes in the minefield.

On the third section of the relay, the teams had to make passes through non-explosive engineering barriers consisting of spears, fences with barbed wire on high stakes and single wooden hedgehogs.

After that, the teams landed in armored personnel carriers, which moved in the direction of overcoming the obstacle with an ascent and descent, and, having already overcome the hill, at maximum speed went to the “Finish” line.
